Best Weapon for Cloud in the FF7 Remake can be a matter of opinion.

There are several weapons in the game available for Cloud and his companions. As with all games, players are always looking for the quickest way to finish combat, deal the most damage, and look great while doing it. Fortunately, Square Enix has made allowances for that with several viable weapons for Cloud to hack and slash his way to the end.

Here's some of the best weapons for Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII.

Best Weapon for Cloud in FF7 Remake

The best weapon for Cloud in the FF7 Remake would have to be his final weapon, the Twin Stinger. Its base stats are 46 for attack and magic but can be leveled to 73 at max. It has 2x2 slots--up to 3x2. Twin Stinger has the Counterstance ability which allows the player to brace for damage and deliver devastating blows in return. It can be obtained from Shinra Tower in Chapter 17 after reuniting with Barret. This is ideal for players who want a little bit of everything for Cloud.

One notable mention is the Mythril Saber. Magic-users will love this weapon with its 76 base magic stat and 138 magic plus 10 magic defense at max. Its max slots are 3x2 and it has the Blade Burst ability, allowing for a blast of non-elemental energy to be shot at the target for extra damage. The Mythril Saber can be purchased from the weapons shop in Wall Market in Chapter 14.

A second notable mention is Hardedge, the counterpart to the Mythril Saber. Those who favor attack will want this weapon for its 137 attack stat at max. Like the other weapons listed above, its max slots are 3x2 and it also has a special ability: Infinity’s End. Using Infinity's End has Cloud line up and wind up a finishing shot on his enemies. Opponents who are staggered receive extra damage. Hardedge can be bought from the Wall Market weapon shop in Chapter 9.
